Finally! According to's Alex Speier, Andrew Bailey will be available to make his Red Sox debut on Tuesday night in Baltimore. Bailey's seemingly endless rehab from thumb surgery is thankfully coming to an end—and none too soon. The Red Sox traded the resurgent Josh Reddick for the former Rookie of the Year to be the replacement for Jonathan Papelbon. It's unclear exactly where Bailey will be slotted in the bullpen rotation, although it may be difficult to dislodge current closer Alfredo Aceves (a Bobby Valentine favorite).
